Kali Uchis dropped the new version of Fue Mejor recently and the new sultry R&B track features SZA singing in Spanish. We take a look at the song’s meaning in this article.
Fue Mejor is one of the most popular tracks from Kali’s 2020 album Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). SZA has been teasing a collab with the Telepatia singer since 2020 and the duo finally delivered their track with a music video.
Fue Mejor’s meaning explored
In a statement about the new track, Kali explained, “This is Latin R&B, this is SZA singing in Spanish for the very first time, this is a spooky season, this IS the moment.”
While Kali starts the first verse, SZA jumps in and sings about getting over someone who wasn’t worth your time. His lyrics read, “Tú nunca fuiste mío, tú nunca fuiste mierda.”
Roughly translated, it means, “You never were mine, you never were sh*t.” The duo then sings the chorus together.
The track Fue Mejor talks about the pain of being betrayed and the scars a bad relationship can leave on a person. Here are a few lines from the track:
Y me fui en el Jeep a las doce
The backseat donde yo te conocí
Si me voy, no pierdas de vista
Hay cosas que se tatúan sin tinta
Loosely translated in English, this means:
And I left in the Jeep at twelve
The backseat where I I met you
If I go, do not lose sight
There are things that get tattooed without ink
